MPCI-L2 - LTE/UMTS/GSM Mini PCIe modules

Powerful LTE modules in an industry‑standard mini PCIe package from u-blox

MPCI-L2 series modules support multi-band LTE-FDD, along with DC-HSPA+ and GPRS/EDGE. With 3GPP Rel. 9 and LTE Cat 4, which provides data throughput up to 150 Mb/s, the modules are ideal for both industrial and consumer applications requiring the highest data-rates.

Typical applications are industrial computing, ruggedised terminals, video communication, wireless routers, alarm panels and surveillance, digital signage, and payment systems. The temperature range of -40 to +85 guarantees operation in harsh environments, making the modules suitable for industrial applications.

The modules support DC-HSPA+ guaranteed connectivity, even in areas that do not yet have LTE coverage. MPCI-L2 series 30.0 x 51.0 x 3.7 mm The industry standard Mini PCIe package enables easy integration onto an application board, and is also ideal for manufacturing of small series.

The MPCI-L2 series comes in module variants for North America, Europe/ Asia/ Africa, APAC/ South America, and Japan. USB drivers and RIL software for Android are free of charge.
